Welcome to the Albury Self Catering Cottage A warm welcome awaits you at both the Albury Cottage and the Albury Villa, located next to each other in the very popular traditional sea side town of Shanklin, one of the oldest towns in the Isle of Wight. Perfectly situated within minutes of Shanklin town, the beautiful quaint Old Village and beaches. You really couldn't pick a more ideal location in Shanklin. The pretty Albury Cottage is a charming, nautically themed, Victorian property, ideal for families and friends to relax in and enjoy either short breaks or long stay holidays. The Albury was built in 1871 and have been fully renovated, whilst keeping its original character. The cottage accommodates four guests with two double bedrooms, one with a double bed with en-suite shower ...Welcome to the Albury Self Catering Cottage A warm welcome awaits you at both the Albury Cottage and the Albury Villa, located next to each other in the very popular traditional sea side town of Shanklin, one of the oldest towns in the Isle of Wight.
